It is a non-spore forming, facultative anaerobic, gram negative rod capable of growing on a variety of media and, similar to other members of the Enterobacteriaceae family, contains the enterobacterial common antigen. Most E. coli are part of the normal flora of the human gastrointestinal tract, however some strains are pathogenic and capable of causing clinical disease. Epidemiologic classification of E. coli is based

    Escherichia coli (E. coli) is defined as a gram negative, rod-shaped, facultative anaerobic bacterium that consist of hundreds of different serotypes and is highly versatile. These serotypes range from strains that are harmless and play a vital role in maintaining intestinal function, to strains that contain pathogenic properties that infect the human body and cause distinct signs and symptoms. Pathogenic Escherichia coli strains are capable of causing three common clinical diseases that include

    Escherichia coli is a member of the family Enterobacteriaceae. It is a bacterium with a cell wall that has many components. Escherichia coli can live without oxygen which means that it is a facultative anaerobe. It is also capable of fermenting lactose under anaerobic conditions, and in the absence of alternative electron acceptors. There are effects and various factors that limit its growth rate. Its morphology consists of a rod-shaped gram negative bacteria that is commonly found in soil, water

    materials have a long history on planet Earth. New innovations in science and technology seek to purposefully mix living materials and nonliving materials, and create objects and substances that are both. In a recent study at MIT, scientists found E. coli to be useful in the production of a biofilm circuit board; moreover, hybrid materials will someday help humans in the areas of architecture, health, and electronics. Hybrid materials can be found in almost every part of nature, ranging from the bones
